I have a PhD in Social Work and Social Research from Bryn Mawr College. I have years of experience tutoring high school and college students in math, statistics, and Spanish language subjects and in general note-taking and study skill development. I especially enjoy helping social science and humanities graduate and undergraduate students understand statistical tests using SPSS, SAS, or Excel. I am willing to work with small groups of students or with persons individually. I like to establish quantifiable goals during the first session so that students can monitor their own progress and celebrate incremental achievements along the way.

I am patient, cheerful, and enjoy helping students find their love for learning amidst seemingly insurmountable frustrations. I am also an avid meditation practitioner and am fond of utilizing mindfulness-based techniques to help students cope with test taking anxiety and general academic performance anxieties. It's not easy being a graduate or undergraduate student in such a competitive world. Please contact me if you are interested in working together.

Patient, personable and practical

Sarah is an excellent teacher. I needed help figuring out what test I needed to run for my data analysis homework assignment. She gave me some very practical tips and tools to help me figure it out on my own.

It is such a pleasure to meet Sarah

Sarah helped me with navigating SPSS. Sarah was able to succinctly help me understand my data and then how to enter the data into SPSS. She was patient, pleasant, attentive and took the time to clearly understand what my needs were. I would highly recommend Sarah without reservations.
